Anne, the secret lovechild of a newly deceased baron is the sole heir to Rosensteen Castle. Her grandmother, the Baroness, who only discovers that she has a grandchild after the death of her son, finds the young rough-around-the-edges woman at the nearby gas station and begins the process of making an educated woman out of her in order to make her a fitting heiress of the castle and title. The snake in this paradise is the Baroness' distant relative Clarissa who attempts to secure the Castle for her own son Henning by burning Anne's only proof of her identity; her birth certificate. In the meantime, Anne gets engaged to Henning. But Anne, now the centre of family squabbles, soon finds herself in a dilemma of chosing between her new polished life and her uncomplicated past life, and in the end she finds a beautiful solution that combines the best of both worlds.
This movie is one of the greatest movies ever made in denmark, and it is better than the new "Dogme-movie" which was popular in the late 90'ies. The movie is about a young girl (Ghitha Nørby) at a gas station who suddenly discover that she is the lawfull successor of a baroness (Maria Garland). The young girl (Anne) moves to the land steward and has to be trained to be a fine woman. For exapmle must Anne learn french which she pronounces quite funny. The dilemma is between Anne and the baroness, and gradually they learn to appreciate the way they are, but now without some conflicts... Naturally Anne falls in love (or does she?). Put together is the movie a great movie full of funny episodes and Maria Garland and Dirch Passer makes the movie worth seeing again and again and again...You never get to se the movie too many times. I hope that you agree,
